Welcome to Librarium Online!
the O&G forum has been quiet lately so i think i'll spark it up by asking a question thats been on my mind.
Whats your favorite lord/general/WAAAGHboss and how do you equip and use him?
Do you like mounting him on a Boar and throw him tusk first into a crowd of zombies hoping that their tender meat roasts perfectly on your pigsticker? Do you like landing behind a group of archers with a orc on a wyvern expecting the smell of dung shortly thereafter, or do you like to charge across the field on foot with your other lads., or maybe you prefer magic(that inevitably gets you killed lol)
Or maybe your a gob boss? thats cool too, the sqeekers have a place in any O&G army as any orc does(but remember orcs bash first goblins stab second!)
Mine is a Black Orc Warboss on foot.

savage orc warboss...
+ armor of gork
+ great weapon
for way under 200 pts you get:
5 S7 attacks
a warboss as tough as steam tank
i throw him in a unit of 29 savage orc big 'uns...
that's 16 4/5 + 5 6/7 attacks... fun!
Mine is pretty standard:
Black Orc Warboss
- Mounted on boar
- Ulag's Akrit Axe
- Best Boss 'At
- Enchanted Shield
- Heavy Armour
If I'm feeling a little crazy I also toss the Itty Ring on him for a little bound spell punchin', but this character is rock solid all around. Very tough, (T5, 1+/5+), dead hitty, (4 str 6 reroll to hit, 1 str 5 on the charge), and a good leadership of 9. He's always performed well for me in the past.
Orc great shaman
Suprisingly durable for a mage, cost effective and a powerful caster. Good for all round long range support. I normally put him with a unit of 18 black orcs.
Any of those blasted Warlords are effective, but from facing them regularly, I found that there are some banners out there that work beautifully with them, especially that Waaaagh! banner (allowing that +D6" movement iirc). With the Bloodaxe, and say the Kikin' boots, you have yourself one General that butchers rank-and-file.
Just thought I'd add a little input on the hope that it may add something vaguely intellectual to the thread.
i'm fairly certain that if you take a magical Banner you can't take a Magical Weapon
Goblin warboss - sneaky skewerer, amulet of protectyness, bigged's kickin boots.
I love gobbos this guy I have used against chaos with some great effect and it surprises the hell out of your opponent when a little gobbo dishes out 5 attacks at -4 to your armour save... not mention against those lovely characters with 1+ saves and 4+ wards.
There is nothing more annoying when your Wyches with Plasma Grenades get "Always strikes First" for their combat drugs!
My main guy (oops Orc) is Hurthak Trollsplitter.
He is a Black Orc Warboos and usually kitted out as follows...
Martog's best Basha
Effigy of Mork
He comes in at 250 points and rolls in with S6 at WS8! The thing that makes him durable is that his spiteful shield and effigy make opponents hit themselves alot. It's very fun to watch them kill themselves.
"Sometimes I wonder why I still live amongst the humans." -
Savage Orc Warboss
- Porko's Pigstikka
- Bigged's Kickin' Boots
- Extra Crew Member
Forgive me if the maths is off, but charge it (of more likely, find yourself forced to charge it) into a rank and file unit for... 17 S5 attacks after the D6+1 S5 impact hits...
It's elf-shreddingly good fun.
